was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way these grim-faced gop senators tell it, susan rice's attempt to calm their criticism backfired. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> i'm more disturbed now than i
israeli positions, some being fired toward israel. >> it's not as if there are united nations personnel monitoring this border crossing if you will. >> no. it's a very surreal system where you actually don't run into any human beings for several steps of the process. it's all done through surveillance cameras, through doors being electronically opened for you and gradually, you know, the closer you get with each door that you go through you're one step closer toward israel and one step, you know -- they've examined you one step further. it's a fascinating system to see up close. >> yeah. at some point -- and you were there for three, four, five days? >> right. >> you must have been scared out of your mind. >> you know, you're definitely in a heightened state of awareness. i wouldn't say scared because i've been in a lot of these areas over the years. but it's always shocking to see the conditions that people are forced to live in in a war zone. and to see what life is like for somebody and who's the only difference between them and myself is the accident of birth and what zip code they
.s. ambassador to the united nations will muster all of her diplomatic skills and tiptoe through a political mine field. susan rice meets with republican senator john mccain. as you know, mccain had vehemently opposed her nomination of secretary of state. now he shows signs of softening. at issue, that deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. was rice playing politics when she said initially that terrorists were not to blame for the killing of four americans? minutes ago, we caught up to senator mccain for these exclusive comments. >> what do you have to learn today from miss rice? >> whatever ambassador rice wants to tell me. she's the one who asked for the meeting. i didn't. >> do you trust her to be secretary of state? >> this issue needs to be resolved, clearly. it needs to be resolved before -- i don't make a judgment as to whether she should be secretary of state or not until she's been nominated. >> you put more blame on the president or miss rice? >> the president is ultimately responsible. >> cnn's dan lothian first reported this morning's meeting with rice and mccain. he joins us n
good ambassador to the united nations and there's so many issues, andrea, that confront the united states from the global economic recession to the afghan war to iran and north korea to the arab revolutions to what's happening in egypt today, i really think that those are the issues that ought to be in front of our congress as well as our administration officials. >> nick, what do you think is going on? this seems to be a proxy war? >> well, it does. it does. i mean, obviously there are a lot of unanswered questions about benghazi and i've certainly believe that members of congress in both parties have a right and responsibility to asks those questions, but there are official commissions that will soon speak to those very questions. there's the commission headed by ambassador pickering and chairman mike mullen, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, other by the u.s. government. these investigations have been done in a deliberate, comprehensive way and we will soon know what their findings are. i think it's better for us as a collective here in the united states, to wait for

's because while opposed to her from her position as ambassador of the united nations and nothing could change my mind on that. bill: based on that answer it appears you are willing to take that answer higher than susan rice with it comes to benghazi. >> this will go down as the biggest coverup in history. they all knew it. they are hoping to have it go beyond the election date which it did. but people are not going to forget it. the administration deliberately covered this and misrepresented what happened in benghazi threatened up in the both of four people. one of whom was a good friend of mine, ambassador stevens. bill: the biggest coverup in american history. >> yes, sir. bill: when senator lieberman came out yesterday afternoon --'s listed as an independent. but he seemed to take more of a sill sill tory tone towards he -- he seemed to take more a conciliatory tone towards sue and rice. you wonder if this is a republican versus democrat issue. if that's the case, you are in the minority. >> that's true. senator lieberman is neither republican nor democrat but he's on the democrat s
is formerly the u.s. ambassador for special political affairs to the united nations. it's nice to have you with us, sir. >> good morning, soledad. >> so yesterday we were reporting at this hour that there were reports that the aggression would stop within hours. then there reports that there would be a 24-hour calm period, that came from a senior hamas official. then we know that hillary clinton was in the region, going from meeting to meeting with netanyahu, and heading eventually to meet with mohamed mursi. now we have this violence with a bus. has the window of opportunity, which it seemed like the secretary was trying to exploit, or leverage, has that closed, do you think, with this explosion? >> first of all, this was a reprehensible terrorist attack. but i don't think it closes the window. you've got these very serious talks ongoing about a long-term solution to things like, you know, border security, the rocket attacks, and a lot of international pressure brought to bear by both arab countries, the united states, and the u.n. so, no, i think that this represents an escalation, but i
that were articulated by the united nations, that is recognizing my country to exist. abandoning terrorism and violence, then the negotiations could begin. but on the contrary, i think in many ways hamas is stuck in a very extreme position. and the evidence we saw for that today. we had the bombing in tel aviv on the bus. and hamas praised that. they welcomed that. they said that was legitimate. and so as long as hamas is doing that sort of thing it is difficult to be optimistic. but if they do change, if they do moderate. if they fundamentally reserve some of their very hard line positions, the door can be opened. >> i mean, do you accept, though, obviously in the last eight or nine days, 30 times as many palestinians have been killed as israelis? so clearly, there is bloodshed on both sides. and israel is not blameless here, either. >> reporter: i think the most important issue here is though, what we're we doing? i mean, this whole operation was not to take territory or change regimes or something grandiose like that. our operation was purely defensive. our goal was to protect our peopl
of her most vocal critics. the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations has been criticized. mccain now says he will not block rice's nomination and he'll give her a chance to explain. >> i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took. i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> rice has said that her description of the attack was based on the best intelligence at the moment. republicans have accused her of downplaying an obvious terrorist attack for political motives. >>> other stories we're watching this morning, a huge gas explosion in springfield, massachusetts, that hurt 21 people was the result of human error. the state fire marshal's office says a utility worker inadvertently poked a hole in a high pressure gas line. that line was incorrectly indicated by sidewalk markings. on friday afternoon the gas built up and eventually it ignited. one building was destroyed. dozens more were damaged. >>> police are investigating the death of a suspected shoplifter at a suburban atlanta walmart. several reports sa

for the first time at the united nations yesterday. she defended what she said on the sunday talk shows about the attack on the consulate in benghazi. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> i want to bring in margie omaro and joe watkins, republican strategist. good morning to both of you. happy thanksgiving. >> good morning. >> this is time of peace and tranquility among the family. let's ask you this. with her having come out now, she's saying what in her own defense what she was given, her talking points, what she was told to say, intelligence given at the time. does this put any of this to rest, joe? >> i think that this is a good start for ambassador rice. she's somebody that has an impeccable background, phi beta kappa rhodes scholar, somebody well regarded in the international community and the united states. she could be very well our next nominee
holliday the former u.s. ambassador for special political affairs to the united nations. he's currently the president and ceo of the meridian international center, which is a public diplomacy organization. ambassador let me start with the news of the shooting along the border between gas zba and israel. how troubling is an incident like this? and how perilous is it, really, for this fragile, fragile cease-fire? >> well, good morning. the local level, it's obviously very troubling, and there are, you know, lives at stake, and there's this delicate balance on the cease-fire. but in the bigger picture, this is -- there's a lot invested in this cease-fire, at the political level and it appears to be at this point more of the typical border incident category kind of problem rather than a directed violation from either side of the cease-fire. i think that's what we're going to have to watch for is what happens next. >> a lot of credit ins are looking at this agreement as a short-term fix, a band-aid that will last as long as, say, hamas manages to rearm and then perhaps start shooting rockets
in government circles. >> reporter: on his release, he will be given 34 lashes. this fall, the united nations human rights office declared that iranian authorities have embarked on a "severe clampdown" on journalists and human rights activists in a run-up to next june's iranian presidential elections. the iranian delegation to the u.n. dismissed the report as unfair and biased, and said the republic has worked wholeheartedly to realize the rights of its citizens. in an email to the newshour, the iranian u.n. mission claimed the report leveled "general allegations in the absence of authentic and reliable evidence aimed to serve propaganda." the communication also stated that political parties "enjoy the right of freedom of speech and free activities", and the iranians accused the u.s. of "a long list of gross and systematic violations of human rights, both at home and abroad." regime critics say they risk years in prison for their actions. abdolfattah soltani, an attorney and co-founder of the defenders of human rights center, tried to represent leaders of the minority b'hai faith. his daughte
they ended up killing one of the forces. palestinians are going to be protesting that to the united nations. but at the same time hamas also responded quickly. today they're keeping protesters away from the fence. they don't want any more of these kinds of clashes with israelis see as provocations. so i think it's clear both sides do want the cease-fire to continue. they both have a very strong vested interest in doing so. and that kind of incident yesterday, which led to the unfortunate death of one palestinian, i doubt that will be repeated in the days to come. the emphasis on both sides is going to be on the next stage, which as you mentioned, which is outlining the details, dealing with the details of what the cease-fire is, what it leads to. what they've got so far is what they've called quiet for quiet. both sides not shooting. what's next is the beginning of the negotiations. it's quite clear what the two sides want although it's going to appear complicated. it's simple and it's basic. hamas wants the lifting of the blockade of gaza. israel wants the end of weapons smuggled into gaza
. the cia said the assault was, in fact, a terrorist attack. rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, is viewed as president obama's top pick to replace secretary of state hillary clinton, who plans to step down early next year. both senators mccain and lindsey graham previously vowed to block her possible nomination. i'm joined now by dan lothian at the white house for us. and dan, what do we hear from mccain and graham this weekend? it seems maybe they provided a little bit of wiggle room now. >> it certainly does appear that way. what we're seeing is a change in tone. there had been sort of this harsh rhetoric they wanted to block this nomination, said they would block this nomination. and now there seems to be this tone where they want to give susan rice a chance to explain herself, that they're willing to sit down and talk over these issues with her. at a listen to what senator mccain had to say about this over the weekend. >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position, just as she said. but she is not the problem. the problem is the

this to supporters on saturday. we're on our way to the united nations. there are lots of states supporting us who support peace and justice. all the factions are with us in going to the united nations. do you -- there are some diplomatic snags, i think it's fair to say. >> yes. >> abbas's office says hamas supports the move. hamas spokesperson said in the jerusalem post, in fact, they don't support the move. explain to me how you're going to be able to navigate this. >> yes. no, we're navigating it very easily because the official statement came out today. yesterday there was a bit of confusion from different hamas sources. but they called the president today and told him he's fully supportive of this move. the hamas official spokesperson came out and said hamas as a whole supports this move and stands behind it. so we really have unanimous total support for going to the u.n., the general assembly, and for getting the application to state status, enhancing our presence and enhancing, of course, our internal political realities as well as our international standing. and getting the recognition of
